LONDON (ICIS)--Here is Wednesday’s midday European oil and chemical market summary from ICIS.
CRUDE: August WTI: $79.09/bbl, down 27 cents/bbl. August BRENT: $92.44/bbl, down 58 cents/bbl
Crude oil futures weakened on Wednesday pressured by growing divisions across the eurozone regarding methods to stabilize European financial markets and deeper fiscal union between members.
NAPHTHA: $713-720/tonne, up $3/tonne
The cargo range edged up from Tuesday afternoon as the effects of higher crude oil values overrode those of a weaker crack spread. July swaps were assessed at $718-720/tonne.
BENZENE: $1,185-1,200/tonne, up15-20/tonne
European benzene traded at $1,190/tonne CIF ARA for July. 1H July benzene continued to be quoted higher than any July delivery. The spot ranges were $1,220-1,260/tonne CIF ARA and $1,185-1,200/tonne respectively.
